Technical discoveries

How to Draw a Girl with Laptop

This week Chris and I have both been a lit­tle under the weath­er with colds. So we haven’t done any­thing very excit­ing, except for spend a lot of time in front of computers.

Today I want to share five six of my tech­ni­cal dis­cov­er­ies of this week. Mainly web­sites and soft­ware which has been useful!

1. Thanks to my grand­pa for this one. Each month the Bible Society pub­lish the Eternity mag­a­zine, full of Aussie Christian news items. Now they also pub­lish online. There have been some jew­els of arti­cles this week with men­tions of friends start­ing bible col­lege (Rosey, Benny and Paul are friends of mine) and an arti­cle about the new prin­ci­pal at Ridley

2. When buy­ing text­books this year, Chris chose to buy some of them in the elec­tron­ic ver­sion. As I start research­ing my Old Testament essay I have enjoyed try­ing out our Logos library

3. Apparently you can’t be a uni stu­dent with­out using some form of bib­li­o­graph­ic soft­ware. Despite man­ag­ing quite well to do my Missions doc­u­ment study man­u­al­ly, for my next essay I will be try­ing out Zotero

4. This week I realised that I have skype on my com­put­er, and I can prob­a­bly use it! If you’d like to skype with us please let us know. I’d love to try it out, and I’m sure Chris knows how it works!

5. I have also been using the Ridley web­site a lot this week, main­ly the eRidley por­tal and the library cat­a­logue. Very use­ful to be able to access from my own desk at home.

6. On the inter­net, you can even learn how to draw a girl with a lap­top! The inter­net sure is full of amaz­ing things!

So there you go. There might be one or two there that you find useful!
Last week we also enjoyed cel­e­brat­ing my grand­pa and aun­t’s birth­days in per­son, book club, fin­ish­ing my doc­u­ment study, and start­ing some hol­i­day planning.

This week we are look­ing for­ward to hand­ing in my doc­u­ment study, church camp, lead­ing a chapel ser­vice, Chris fin­ish­ing his first essay.

What are your favourite web­sites and pro­grams to use for study, infor­ma­tion gath­er­ing or just for fun?
